Oldie but Goodie Party to Benefit AME HBCUs

Synergy Training Solutions is sponsoring an Oldie But Goodie Party to benefit the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) on Friday March 17 from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. The event will take place at 1009 Sabre Court in Chapel Hill, NC.

Synergy Training Solutions founder, Theresa Watson, is a graduate of an HBCU as well as a member of the AME church. She created Synergy Training Solutions to focus on awareness and advocacy for HBCUs.

In addition to the Oldie But Goodie Party, this year Synergy Training Solutions is sponsoring the 2017 AME College Fair on March 18th at St. Matthew AME Church in Raleigh, NC. The 8 HBCUs that were founded by the AME church will be in attendance. The eight colleges are Allen University (Columbia, SC), Edward Waters College (Jacksonville, FL), Morris Brown College (Atlanta, GA), Paul Quinn College (Dallas. TX), Payne Theological Seminary (Wiberforce, OH), Shorter College (North Little Rock, AR), Turner Theological Seminary-ITC (Atlanta, GA), and Wilberforce University (Wilberforce, OH).

Financial aid is an obstacle that students attending college must overcome to feel confident in their decision. Having a financial aid award can determine if a student will or will not attend college. Synergy Training Solutions’ goal is to help the AME HBCUs so that financial aid does not prevent a potential student from attending their institution.

The tickets are $25.00 and can be purchased online at or by mailing a check. All checks should be made payable to: Synergy Training Solutions and sent to: Synergy Training Solutions

     109 N. Graham Street

     Suite 104

     Chapel Hill, NC 27516

All proceeds from the ticket sales will be used to provide scholarships to students attending HBCUs. If you cannot attend the fundraiser your support is welcomed. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us via telephone, (919) 240-7135, or e-mail,, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
